Tuttosport: Milan and Inter reflecting as council ask for extra €100m investment in new stadium

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter will have to incur extra costs if they are to satisfy the demands of the City Council over the new stadium, a report claims.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes how in recent days the City Council approved the agenda to ask Milan and Inter for some changes to the original stadium project, after the public debate process which took place over the last few weeks.

In particular, what is being asked is an increase in capacity to at least 70,000 seats to avoid a drastic increase in ticket prices. However, the clubs are aware that increasing the number of seats would also increase the costs by at least €100m.

For this reason Milan and Inter are studying the situation and how to proceed, given that the project originally agreed upon already costs €1.3bn, so further costs might well push the Rossoneri and Nerazzurri to think about a move to a different part of the city.

  1. Leave inter and build the stadium in Sesto and he dont have to be bothered by City Council and have more more money without inter sharing the stadium!All the other big teams have their own stadium so why should we share our home with our biggest rivals!

    1. +1

      however some people want to have trAdiTiOn. We aren’t winning UCL if we maintain that tradition. We need money for winning it which we don’t have with sharing stadiums.

    2. You are aware of course that building the stadium also doubles the costs of building and maintaining it. That would double the amount of time it would take to recoup those sunken costs limiting the amount the club could invest in the squad in theory. There is far more to business than you believe hence the decision to build alone would be far more complicated no matter how much we all would prefer to have our own stadium.

  2. A lot of negatives can be fairly said about the city councils handling of this process but in regard of the stadium size im with them because one of my greatest worries has always been the size of the stadium as this is a sport for and by the people and not a bunch of business executives being fillers. By having less seats in the stadium it will make it more difficult to attend matches and whos the first to pay for that is low income workers,
    Milan should in my view have at minimum a 75.000 seater stadium but at least 70.000 would be a step in the right direction compared to a 60-65.000 one.

    1. Agreed about the “quality of fans” if the stadium was too small. But I think 70k would be more than fine.

      No matter if it’s 65k or 70k as long as they start building it in 2023!!!

      1. I want this stadium project kickstarted as much as anyone else and i wouldnt oppose the idea of us going our own ways or building it in sesto san giovanni but i do believe that the planned size is somewhat too small,

        Anyways i agree we need to get started as fast as possible because we have already been waiting for roughly 5 years from what i can recollect.

        1. We have been waiting for a new stadium approval for at least a decade.
          Who can forget Barbara Berlusconi plan to build a stadium similar to Juventus’ of only 40k seats. Thank God that the proposal didn’t go through

          1. im usually pretty good at remembering milan related stuff but damn that i doesnt remember 😀 seriously she actually proposed a 40.000 seater i was pretty sure the lowest that had been proposed was a 50-55.000 stadium.

          2. Yeah, I remember Barbara’s project too but had managed to forget the capacity thing. I hope I won’t be seeing nightmares in the next few nights because of you bringing that up again! 😛
